History Hack: Surrealism, Lee Miller and Roland Penrose

Photographer Lee Miller and artist Roland Penrose were at the centre of the inter-war Surrealism movement. Through their art, they embraced the movement before the war intervened and changed the direction of their lives. Boney and Charlotte are joined by Antony Penrose, Lee and Roland's son, and Ami Bouhassane, their granddaughter, to discuss surrealism and the incredible lives of Lee and Roland.
